In file: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/cafelog/wordpress/wp-comments-post.php?rev=1.27&view=markup

The code:
<pre> If the user is logged in
if ( $user_ID ) :

$comment_author = $user_login;</pre>

Should be replaced with:
<pre> If the user is logged in
if ( $user_ID ) :

$comment_author = $user_identity;</pre>

Confirmed. While we're on the subject, two lines below that line, "http://" should NOT be removed as this breaks the links on commentors' names.
